Tickets for Ullapool Book Festival go on sale on Friday, March 25th.
The twelfth festival will be held from Friday 6 May to Sunday 8 May in Ullapool Village Hall.
Among the writers coming to Ullapool are Janice Galloway, Bernard MacLaverty, Raja Shehadeh, Kevin MacNeil and two award-winning Canadian authors Lynn Coady and Lisa Moore.
In her welcome in the programme Ullapool Book Festival’s honorary president Louise Welsh said: “Literary festivals abound across Britain and beyond, but Ullapool is unique in its combination of local and international.
“The quality of the writers involved is clear from a glance at the programme.
“So what draws these writers here? The incomparable countryside, warm welcome and superb food (including an impressive array of tray bakes) undoubtedly play a part.
“But the draw is more than that – remember writers are not easily extracted from their pages. Ullapool Book Festival offers the opportunity for a high level, continuing conversation between writers of different backgrounds and genres and an intelligent, involved audience.
“It’s the lively discussions that pull me back to Ullapool and which I will miss most this year when I am in New Zealand on a Scottish Writers’ Fellowship.”
